The TATA Project


The TATA Project

The TATA Project

  • The Tata Project is located in the western Anti-Atlas Mountains, 30 km south of the Company’s Azrar copper-silver project.
  • The Project is located approximately 465 km south of the capital Rabat, 165 km southeast of the port city of Agadir, and 50 km southeast of the Tizert copper mine operated by Managem Group.
  • Late Ediacaran to early Cambrian-aged Adoudounian sediments occur within the Project along the southern flanks of the Proterozoic Tagragra de Tata Inlier.
  • Initial prospecting along the north part of the Tata Project identified copper mineralisation hosted within sediments along a strike distance of c.8 km.
  • More recent fieldwork has observed copper mineralisation along a further 7 km of strike (laboratory results from this work are pending).
  • 1 additional licence covering 16 km2 has been granted and lies to the immediate east of the Tata Project. Combined with this new extension, the Project now comprises 10 licences for a total area of 154.4 km2.

TATA : Reported Highlights

The TATA Project

· Stratiform sediment-hosted copper mineralisation identified within Adoudounian sediments occurring on the flanks of a Proterozoic inlier.

· 2.05 % Cu was reported from a dolomite float sample adjacent to the contact between Adoudounian sediments and the Proterozoic inlier.

· Results include 0.95 % Cu from a 4 m thick dolomitic sequence and 0.87% Cu from an 8 m thick sequence of dolomite and marl.

· 17 km of Adoudou Formation strike extension remains untested within the Project.

· Copper mineralisation is also identified within younger Cambrian-aged units overlying the Adoudou Formation.

· The Project is located 50 km southeast of the Tizert copper mine.
